Windows 7: Bad_pool_header

CMOS clears BIOS, not sure if a game could do that kind of damage.

I figured as much. Could it be that it was the crash that caused the problem and not the game directly?

I think the real question here is why you have registered two accounts and are replying to your own posts under another username

If you sit in front of a mirror you could have hours of fun conversation without going near the internet

falafel is my flatmate. I told him I had computer problems and was asking online. I told him my username and he must have figured everything out himself and then replied in my thread. he probably just created an account to make fun of my lack of knowledge...

What PSU are you running? (Also list your Graphics Card and CPU again so I don't have to go hunting through the thread to find the info)

The Graphics Stress passing does not rule out a Graphics Card error either.

GPU: ATI Radeon HD4850
CPU: AMD Athlon II x3 440

Resetting the CMOS battery clears the BIOS but how did that fix the problem (why wouldn't the computer boot up to begin with?)

Strange BSOD

After having seemingly solved my BSOD problems, I was browsing the internet when I received a sudden BSOD. I was unzipping a file in the background, but other than that, the computer was not doing anything resource-hungry.

The BSOD did not provide any indication of what was wrong, but I am no expert. I am attaching the important files in the hope that someone here knows what's wrong.

Could all these problems be solved through a simple reinstall of Windows 7?

I began posting your analysis in another thread, only to find that you have posted the same problem here. Your BSOD problem is in capable hands. Double posting a BSOD problem will only add to the difficulties.
I merged this and the other thread, here.


How do you know whose advice you should take?

Sorry for my lack of knowledge, but reading through the dates in what you put it, seems like those were the previous BSODs. Is there anything about the recent one (i.e. in the past hour)?

I have just discovered that you have another theread with this same problem.
I am going to discontinue work on this thread and have the two combined.
